On Saturday, April 20th, a mobile shredding truck will be at the Holliston High School from 9 a.m. to noon, providing a free service to securely shred and recycle confidential documents to celebrate Earth Day and support local organizations.

During Holliston Community Shredding Day, residents will witness documents being securely shred on site, and all paper at the event will be recycled with the help of Universal Shredding. Some ideas for documents for shredding are old tax returns, bank statements, credit reports, receipts, and credit card offers.

In addition to the shredding, recycling of electronics and reuse of clothing, shoes, or toys will also be on hand, according to a press release.

Gallo Moving and C.O.W.S. (Containers on Wheels) has taken on the role of recycling electronics for the community. They will be there with their C.O.W. to haul away televisions, monitors, printers, phones, etc. They will be recycling these electronics free of charge.

PlanetAid, a local Holliston business, will be on hand to collect residents’ bags of clothing, shoes, toys, and books.

Ed and Doriane Daniels, Holliston residents and Realtors with Realty Executives, are hosting this event. A full detailing of what items people should bring to the event can be found on their website, www.MAhome.com.

All participants in the event will be entered to win raffle prizes.

Local sponsors such as Pepperoncini’s Grill, Edward Moloney of GMH Mortgage, Henry Studio, Mayo Septic Services, and Newfound Farm are offering giveaways, such as gift certificates, and a personal shredder.

Ahronian Landscaping will be handing out seedlings so that guests can plant a tree for Earth Day. The town's Tree Warden Mark Ahronian will give advice joining the international Earth Day encouragement to plant a tree.

While this event is free, and donations are welcome.

The local organization being supported, Friends of the Holliston Trails, will be there to talk about recent successes in the goal to bring a “rail trail” through Holliston.
